Ghosts

Ghost of my mother
wakes me about three
keeps me in that twilight zone
of not awake not asleep
until she quits around five
she wishes to apologise
make everything a ok
I think what this really about
is she doesn’t like what I write
about her
the way she was
so I tell her it’s a bit late
for all of that
when you were here
you would not let me in
should I be the same to you now?
& my dad is there somewhere too
I hear him chuckling
he knows he did his best
has no apologies to make
except that of not loving enough
& that is a sin
I believe we all create
while I try to tell her
like your life
your will
its too late to fix
I’m not in it
